This very full-bodied wine has oak for days, 60 of them to be precise, because that's how long it was aged in whiskey barrels. Effusive pencil shaving and cedar-shingle aromas lead to even more concentrated cedar and menthol flavors that coat the tongue and sides of the mouth. Recommended for oak fanatics. Jim Gordon

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
